Revista de Saúde Pública , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-89102000000300017
Abstract: this is the first report of the presence of aedes albopictus in the native rain forest, near the urban area of recife (state of pernambuco, brazil). adult female mosquitoes were collected using human bait. mosquitoes in aquatic stages were looked for in treeholes, bamboos, bromeliads and old tires. the existence of ae. albopictus in the metropolitan area of recife poses a potential risk for the interaction of this mosquito species with the urban human population.
Filtros ceramicos fibrosos para gases a alta temperatura
Daliana Müller,Carlos Renato Rambo,Murilo Daniel de Mello Innocentini,Edinalda Augusta Moreira
Exacta , 2008,
Abstract: Fibrous structures are specially indicated for high temperature gas filtration, due to their high permeability and high retention capacity. Fibrous filters were produced using fibrous silico-aluminous refractory mantels, using 10% polyvinyl acetate (PVA) as binder. After cold pressing the samples were submitted to a thermal treatment at 750°C for 1 hour for degradation of the polymer into carbon with simultaneous oxidation in CO/CO2. Subsequently, the filters were sintered at temperatures between 900 and 1000°C, for 1 hour, finally resulting in an interconnected fibrous network with relative densities varying from 0.28 to 0.43 g/cm3, which correspond to porosities in the rangefrom 72% to 57%. The microstructure and morphology of the fibrous filters was evaluated by scanning electron microscopy. Permeability of the fibrous filters was determined in function of temperature. The Darcyan permeability, k1, was in the order of magnitude expected for hot gas filters and, therefore, suitable for several industrial applications.
Minimal Repair Redundancy for Coherent Systemin its Signatures Representation  [PDF]
Vanderlei da Costa Bueno
American Journal of Operations Research (AJOR) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajor.2011.11002
Abstract: In this paper we discuss how to maintain the signature representation of a coherent system through a minimal repair redundancy. In a martingale framework we use compensator transforms to identify how the components minimal repairs affect the order statistics in the signature representation.
A Coherent System Component Importance under Its Signatures Representation  [PDF]
Vanderlei da Costa Bueno
American Journal of Operations Research (AJOR) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajor.2011.13019
Abstract: In this paper we discuss how to measure the component importance for a system in its signature representation. The definition is given in terms of compensator transform and it can be considered as a new formalization of the ideas presented by Bergman [1] in the context of system signature.
Anaphylatoxins: From Supposed Toxin Anaphylactics to Effective Mediators of the Early Events of Inflammation  [PDF]
Wilmar Dias da Silva
Open Journal of Veterinary Medicine (OJVM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojvm.2012.24043
Abstract: This review updates original data describing the experiments showing the complement origin of anaphylatoxins unexplainable submerged under the surface of the articles related to the subject. Next, recalls subsequent data describing the anaphylatoxins peptide nature and sequences, the cell receptors with which they interact and activate and the outcome of the cell responses. The review continues by highlighting the anaphylatoxin biological properties focusing on the unequivocal participation of these mediators in inflammation. The review concludes bringing data reinforcing the promising use of these peptides as molecular primers to create specific and efficient pharmacological antagonists.
Reliability Measure of a Relay Parallel System under Dependence Conditions  [PDF]
Vanderlei da Costa Bueno
American Journal of Operations Research (AJOR) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ajor.2013.31A009

In a relay system of dependent components, the failure to close reliability measure is given as a Girsanov transform of the failure to open reliability measure.

Discourse Analysis: Ronald Reagan’s Evil Empire Speech  [PDF]
Juliana Vianna da Nobrega
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2014.41014

Language can be a powerful tool to convince others and make them cooperative. Cialdini (2007) has worked out several principles along which it is possible to analyze discourses in terms of their persuasiveness. Others also have contributed with tools to analyzing discourses such as Fairclough (2003). These tools are used to analyze the “Evil Empire Speech” of the US President Ronald Reagan that he held at the National Association of Evangelicals, 1983, in Orlando Florida. His historical speech was aimed at convincing the nation about the righteousness of his nuclear policy. He partly rewrote the already prepared script and included the “evil empire” part. The analysis supports that his speech was an exceptionally effective one. Reagan made his speech an example of the following principles of persuasiveness such as reciprocity, authority, commitment, liking, scarcity and social proof. He wanted support for belligerent intentions from a faithful community, which was already problematic, but he got the audience on his side through emphasizing his similarities with them, his own faithfulness, the presentation of strong examples and balancing humor and seriousness. Additionally, he introduced the striking metaphor “evil empire”, which stuck to the peoples’ minds and had an impact on them. He also appealed to the people through implicitly distinguishing the evil from the ones who were not evil—the US citizens. Thus, he made the American people feel better, to ensure them that they do the right thing when following him. He ranked religious people above him when he was joking about clergy men and politicians. To reinforce his authority, he borrowed the authority of various respected men through citing them. He improved his position and the power of his arguments using the philosophical wisdom of others.

Globalization, Cultural Change and Religion: The Case of Pentecostalism  [PDF]
Alberto da Silva Moreira
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.24043
Abstract: The challenges faced by this paper are two folds: to understanding how cultural changes brought about by globalization can influence religions and, conversely, how religions can influence broader cultural change. Globalization has spread powerful cultural forms, such as international popular consumer culture, media culture and the culture of the individual. These cultural forms or horizons interact with and transform local cultures which are often intertwined with traditional religions. Throughout this process, traditional religion can weaken its potential to express local cultures, but can also become a vehicle used to express strategies of identity affirmation. Many modalities of globalization-compatible religion, like Pentecostalism, are also consistently penetrated by consumer culture, media culture and individualism. When they interact with traditional religion, they often function as a critical dissolving factor. Therefore, Pentecostalism and similar religions have themselves become active factors in (global) cultural change processes.
The Crisis of Religious Identity and Religious Landscape in Contemporary Brazil  [PDF]
Alberto da Silva Moreira
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.210003
Abstract: Inserted in the processes of economic, political and cultural globalization, there is a crisis within traditional meaning-producing and identity-creating institutions, such as the state, family, school and traditional religions, going on in Brazil and in other Latin American countries. If in the 1930s being Brazilian and Catholic were considered two sides of the same national religious identity coin, which could be applied, mutatis mutandis, to other countries in the region, today Brazil is rapidly becoming a multi-cultural and multi-religious country. It remains the largest Catholic country, but is also already the largest Pentecostal and the largest Spiritualist country in the world. In addition, other religious minorities, such as African-Brazilian religions, Buddhists, Muslims and Jews increasingly occupy the public sphere. Parallel to this shift, there is a significant effort being put forth by many Brazilian and South American religious communities to expand on a global level, such as the Pentecostals, charismatic Catholics, Spiritualists and Afro-Brazilian communities. This presentation analyzes the causes and the data related to this religious and identity change and highlights some trends for the future.

Christian Nunes da Silva
Creative Education (CE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2015.67070
Abstract: This article aims to analyze and discuss the use of digital interactive games, such as learning tools to be used by educators in the classroom, as a resource for geography teaching-learning process in the early grades. This discussion arose from the analysis by geography course graduation students of the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), in the years 2013 and 2014, at which this tool has gained recognition of its potential by students. In this sense, the objective is a brief discussion, based on the analysis of some selected examples on how these digital games can become fundamental importance of resources for teaching Geography and how these should be used and applied in the classroom by educators in a critical way, which will allow students to have adequate learning about the geographic space.
